Nathan Huette and Casey Tucker



Potential proposal for space exploration with key thought of research units which can be housed on the exterior of the station’s body. Requires a high degree of further development. Perhaps researching the Curiosity Rover could be fed back into the proposal’s design.

    Your project immediately pops out from the rest of the proposals. Instead of focusing on vehicle design you propose a terraforming swarm of automated pods. You show growing some kind of vegetation from the delivered structures. What about the atmosphere? Scientists theorizing on this subject all agree terraforming should start with creation of an atmosphere first (you need a shield, a bubble for the produced gases). That means the first stage is to create a green house effect by producing large quantities of gas (CO2 is preferable, but other can be produced depending on the available material available on the planets). Large nuclear-powered stations or geothermal stations (if planet is geothermal active) are usually proposed since the energy needed to produce a planetary atmosphere is truly staggering. Now, when the planet has a shield microbial or even multicellular life can be introduced to produce a suitable atmosphere for humans. So basically there are more steps to this. An it all takes several millennia to achieve…
    You also didn’t mention where would you replenish your pods with organic material, propellants, etc.. The proposal has weak points but its exciting nevertheless! Thumbs up for outside-the-box thinking. 🙂
